How do I participate in University Governance at the University of Alberta?

Student Representative to GFC Committee



    Are you interested in becoming an Undergraduate or Graduate representative elected to a Standing Committee of General Faculties Council? Annually each spring, and when vacancies arise throughout the year, the GFC Nominating Committee (NC) works to replenish vacant staff membership positions across all of its committees.

    "Wherever possible, the majority of elected members of each standing committee should be drawn from the membership of GFC to provide tangible links between GFC and its standing committees and increase engagement of the greater GFC community." (GFC/April 27, 2017)

    Thinking of Applying? You may wish to view a GFC committee meeting in action!
